How do you change an air filter on a 1995 Mercury Sable if the clips holding the top down are off but the top of the black compartment will not open?

When changing the air filter on a 1995 Sable (3.0 Liter), note that there are two clips in the rear holding the top down over the filter. In addition, the front of the cover has an upward facing lip that is designed to engage on an adjoining, downward facing lip on the box that holds the air filter. After opening the two latches in the rear, pull the rear of the top up and towards the front of the car while pushing the front of the top down and pulling it forward. This should separate the front catch and allow you to remove the hood. Reverse this procedure after changing the filter, locking the front in place before reattaching the two rear clamps.

The cabin air filter, in your 2004 Mercury grand Marquis, is located behind the dashboard on the passenger side. The air filter is directly behind the glove compartment.

Tools needed are a Phillips screwdriver. Turn off the ignition switch. Locate the cabin air filter compartment access cover under the passenger side dashboard. Carefully remove the 5 (five) screws holding the filter compartment access cover. Use caution to avoid damage to the access cover or loss of the screws. Remove the filter compartment access cover. Slide the filter element out of the compartment by the tab in the center of the filter. Replace with a clean cabin filter and reinstall the compartment access cover.
